Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those fangirls who pretend to be one of their original Mary Sue characters in real life, draw tons of smut and ERP all day to compensate for something or weird stuff like that. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Interests
Man, these holidays we're short... I've finished working at my job at the post office yesterday, since at Monday my studies at the university will start again, what'll be very exciting since we'll finally get our very new university building at the Toniareal. But first we'll spend two weeks in a painting camp in Langwies with the students from Lucerne. That's a bit boring since it's literally just around the corner to home but well, living in the most beautiful canton of Switzerland comes with the price that everyone wants to see it. I hope it'll be fun still =)

I got to say that I'm pretty disappointed of this summer. Not only was I working at the postal office all day since this year we had special events in the village due to our national park getting a 100 years old (big event meaning lot's of work due to people ordering all possible stuff) but also repairing the "sgrafits" (wall paintings typical for rhaetian culture) of a several 100 years old house afterwards, meaning that I mostly came home after work and dropped dead in my bed in an instant. That was very tough. More so since summer never came to Switzerland this year, though the spring looked so promising for a nice and warm summer. Nope! Rain all time, causing flooding and landslides who even caused to derail a train not far from here. And if it wasn't raining, then it sure was cloudy and cold as fuck. Perfect for working outsides all day... I think Cuban Jesus needs a sacrifice, so at least autumn will be warm and sunny for ibex hunt. I really got wet and cold enough this year.
I planned to go hike in Spain for two weeks first but since my uncle got sick and I had so much work to do anyways this year, I had to drop that plan pretty fast. Afterwards I wanted to go with my cousin to London for a week but turns out that he ran out of money and got a new girlfriend, so I had to forget about that too and decided to work all time instead.

Yeah, so I pretty much worked nonstop during the holidays and that was quite a lot this year. It got me plenty of money for my semester in Iceland if things go as planned but it still annoys me a bit since I was mostly too tired to draw when I came home and I didn't really wanted to waste the little of time I got for drawing with submitting stuff from college. Though I cleaned most of my gallery, I decided that there will be time to submit college stuff from last semester during autumn or winter when there's anyways not much to do besides of college. Also I'll slightly edit the permission documents but besides of that and adding new folders, I'm done I think. I'm really sorry for the lack of art, guys but this summer really sucked up all my time and energy and rain and snow in summer aren't really helping me getting artistic :/
Anyways I don't know if I'll have internet in Langwies for the next two weeks or much time whatsoever to drop by but to make amends for the lack of art this summer, I'll submit something new related to Halo today, if I can finish it. It's a comic strip dedicated to Halo 5 and really crazy, so I hope you'll like it and not kill me for it's craziness ;)

Have a good start in school/university!
